Who we are and what we do

EUMA Foundation Members

The in their respective state of origin leading European Mountaineering Associations form an association in order to represent their common interests, in particular in the fields of mountaineering, protection of nature and Alpine regional planning as well as the objectives documented in the Convention on the Protection of the Alps (Alpine Convention) and the Carpathian Mountains (Carpathian Convention). The association does not deal with the forms of organised competitive sports, developed from the mountain sports.
